Description

The PSA Total+% Free Only tests measure the levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) in the blood. PSA is a protein produced by the prostate gland which is located just below the bladder in men. PSA levels increase when the prostate is enlarged, infected, or cancerous. High PSA levels may indicate a prostate health issue such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostatitis, prostate cancer, and other prostate abnormalities. The PSA Total+% Free Only tests can help a clinician diagnose prostate issues and also monitor tumor growth or response to treatment. The PSA test is often used as part of a regular physical exam, or as a follow-up to an abnormal digital rectal exam or a biopsy procedure. PSA testing is important because it can detect prostate cancer in its early stages when it is most treatable. It can also monitor the progression of the disease in people who already have prostate cancer, as well as monitor patients after they have been treated.
